• Goodbye janky grey old blinds, ‘ello bright and flowy linen curtains 🕊 
I’ve shared the curtain makeover on stories so you can see the before, process and after.
We couldn’t find a curtain rod we liked so we wandered to the timber section of the hardware store and picked up a length of tassie oak dowel. What do you think?
And yes, another brick feature wall. This one is def going to be painted white – and maybe white VJ panels down the track!
  • Hopefully the first of many before and afters 👉🏼
We’re brimming with DIY and renovation ideas for this new home of ours, but first it’s planning (and saving $) time.
Like the brick wall and ceiling — would you leave as is or paint one (or both) white? 🤔
I’ll be sharing more of the process on stories so come join, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
  • If I could bottle up that feeling you get when you get out of your bubble and find yourself in a new, tranquil place, I would. Where’s your go-to happy place?
  • When my mind starts playing tricks on me and I feel like I’m quite literally dying (thank you Anxiety for this gift, so generous of you), I try to do at least one of these things:
🌊 Go to water (the beach, shower, bath, anything, even watering the garden helps)
🛌 Burrow into bed and read or watch a show (decidedly not Handmaid’s Tale at this time, nothankyou) and cuddle my cats
🏃🏻‍♀️ Exercise (I know I know, but it works)
💬 Talk. Tell someone I’m feeling anxious, and hear out loud the things that my panic is trying to convince me to believe. 
But sometimes these don’t help. And I just sit with it and hope it will pass soon. I’ve become more comfortable with this sitting, mainly because often I don’t have a choice. But also because the older I get the more I realise it’s going to be ok. And I’m not alone in this. And neither are you.
〰️ If you’re comfortable sharing, I’d love to hear the ways you help yourself when you’re feeling anxious #anxiety #mentalhealthawareness
  • Sometimes you just need a little bit of sunshine in print form. Hope you all have a sunny weekend ahead 🌻
  • A camouflage Fin keeping me company while I hang out the washing 🍂
  • I can practically smell the sea spray 🌞
This is from the summer just past in Sydney, not long before we packed up and moved back north. 
There’s something romantic about film, probably the way it hauls you back to a moment months, even a year, ago when that finished roll of film is finally developed. Like nostalgia concentrated and memory cemented. Does that even make sense?
  • Apparently you can train cats to sit, lie down and shake hands... anyone had any luck? 🤭
  • Found this speckled vase at a market last year and it’s been empty until now. I reckon it would be pretty happy with its new friends ✨
  • Nature speaks in early morning blue light and golden evening hues, the way the tide breathes fresh clear water and life into creeks, the tiny spheres of sand crabs leave on the beach, the produce ripening on a tree, kissing the sun.
  • Grateful for this golden hour R+R ✨
  • Light dances ✨
